Twitter is buzzing about an unconfirmed report that the U.S. State Department is partnering with a group of which the political terrorist and convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin is a director. Unbelievable. Perhaps that explains the answer to this Twitter user’s earlier question:
If you follow the blogosphere, you’ll know that bloggers who criticize left-wing activist and convicted bomber Brett Kimberlin have been harassed. While doing some research on Mr. Kimberlin, I discovered he runs a group called Justice Through Music, which has received money from Soros and other rich progressives. Looking on JTMP’s front page, I discovered this interesting little bit of information.
MAY 24, 2012 - JTMP has been a participant in the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program for 3 years now, where citizens from around the world involved in the arts get to come to America and visit to learn about the role of arts in the US. This year we had visitors that came from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia to see how Justice Through Music Project uses art to raise awareness on issues, and to bring about social change. This year’s contingent had musicians, playwrights, and people involved in art production. We gave them a presentation and showed them many of our musical art videos that deal with politics and issues, while we spoke about how we operate and produce our art videos. We then showed them how we use this art on our website and YouTube channel to raise awareness on an issue to help bring about positive social change
Read the whole thing.
Kimberlin is a director at the Justice Through Music Project, as Breitbart.com reported earlier today.
A Breitbart News investigation has revealed that many of the funders of the Justice Through Music Project (JTMP), a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization of which convicted “Speedway bomber” Brett Kimberlin is a director, do not know about his criminal past. Those foundations and funds listed as donors that responded to request for comment also indicated that they had not been contacted by media other than Breitbart News.
No media contacted them and apparently the State Department has never questioned them either.
The State Department’s program is the “International Visitor Leadership Program.”
Leadership? If this is true, is that what the State Department calls life-threatening SWATing these days?
This is the despicable and dangerous man they wish to use to put forth as a citizen of the world ambassador? Beyond horrifying. This cannot stand, if it’s accurate. We must get even louder, conservative happy warriors.
Most of us either know or have some twitter relationship with folks who work on the Hill. Send them that Kimberlin/State Dept link.—

Where is the media? Again.
